To answer your question, yes, I am perfectly prepared for the next earthquake in Haiti.

The next big one won't hit Haiti, but the DR, or Jamice, Puerto Rico or Cuba.

In LA where I lived, the earth shakes every day. They keep talking with a stupid smile about the Big one. No big one since 1994, Northridge, I was there.

Don't fall into that trap, Woodring; it's negative.
